Feed Nicaragua is a Countryside YMCA mission project that provides food for hungry children by packing meals here in the U.S. and delivering them to our partners in Nicaragua. Each meal is a precise mixture of dried chicken, dried vegetables, rice, and soy and can be prepared using only boiling water. This meal contains a full day's nutrients for the kids who are served. Each meal costs thirty cents and is probably the only hot meal most of the children will receive on a given day. 

Our goal is to raise $26,250 and provide over 75,000 meals to Nicaragua. You, your family, your business, your community organization, sports team or church can take an active role in the Feed Nicaragua initiative through donating and/or volunteering. Learn more here.
